re: Going to Bangkok on Thursday, anybody have any pointers besides wear a condom? - JL
Either go somewhere else in Thailand or get a personal driver/tour guide. Bangkok is ridiculously big and easy as hell to get lost. If you aren't there with a local you'll be wasting a lot of time trying to figure out what to do and where to go. I went out there with my buddy who lived there for ...

re: Tokyo and Kyoto - JL
Agree with above, Kyoto blew my mind, Tokyo was just another big city, cool but not as unique as Kyoto. In Kyoto hit up the golden temple, imperial palace, bamboo forest, nijo castle, ryoan ji (old zen temple). There are a ton of good restaurants along the Kamo river. If you google Hello Dolly, ...

re: Tel Aviv, Israel / Jerusalem - JL
I did this trip, did a few days in Tel Aviv, it's great for partying and enjoying the culture. I stayed in Jerusalem for about a week, I can't express enough what an amazing experience this was. I stayed at the austrian hospice in the old city which was cool. Wandering the town during the day...

re: Travel Essentials for airplane or location - JL
I used to could make a great list for this when I was working overseas. I could expand on why for each one if needed. Below is for anything over 6 or 7 hrs or with a layover (most of my trips for work used to be 16-20 hrs of travel time). I've been stuck with long layovers all over the world. I'...

re: A dufferent kind of phone question. - JL
I used to work in Erbil. They won't check your phone but we used burners. Get one that takes a sim card and buy a new sim card when you get in country. I'm guessing that's where you are going, if you have any questions about it let me know, my old roommate is still working there. ...

Duck calling assistance - JL
I usually let my friends call but it's time do it myself. I've got a 6 in 1 whistle, a high roller, and single reed and double reed call. My plan is to focus on the whistles and start working on the others which I'm told are harder to master. Any advice, recommendations or recommended vide...

American Express Premium Rewards - JL
So I've had the card for a few years and have racked up a ton of points, but don't use any of the services or anything associated with American Express. For folks who use AMEX, what services do you use that they provide? I need to take advantage considering what I pay for the yearly fee. Al...
